It was an honor to be included in the historic “The Black Issue”  of my favorite fashion magazine VOGUE Italia in 2008.

Rest in peace Franca Sozzani, Editor in Chief Vogue Italia a true visionary. The layouts were always second to none and forward thinking. The Black Issue was her way of trying to address the lack of diversity in fashion.

I’m eternally grateful that Ms. Sozzani chose for me to be a part of this bit of fashion history. My condolences to her family, her son and friends who knew her best.
